Or Emet, the Minnesota Congregation for Humanistic Judaism, begins its 2021 Shabbat programming at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1, at the Sabes Jewish Community Center, 4330 South Cedar Lake Rd., St. Louis Park. Those who cannot attend in person may join over Zoom. Please register in advance.
Or Emet member Richard Logan will present “Jewish Protest Music in America and Abroad.” The program will include songs written and/or sung by Jewish people, and a song or two where Jews are the subject. Since this topic is so rich in material, the program will encourage discussion and suggestions. Logan is a past-president of Or Emet and the Society for Humanistic Judaism and a retired professor of human development.
Or Emet ritual leader and rabbinic candidate Eva Cohen will lead a short Humanistic Jewish Sabbath service preceding the program, which is free and open to the public.
Please note: All attendees must wear a mask in all areas of the JCC and will be asked for proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test. Please bring written verification with you. Plans are subject to change based on CDC and state guidelines.
Or Emet is a secular congregation celebrating and honoring Jewish culture, history and values from a humanistic, inclusive perspective.
